Restaurant details
Reviewed 12 September 2018

Found OCM Crabs on TripAdvisor.com and decided to give them a try on our beach weekend in Ocean City, MD on Sunday, September 9, 2018. We arrived around 8:00 p.m. and there were only three other tables of people. However, by the time we left, every table was full.

My daughter is on a Keto diet and inquired about the contents of the crab dip which she then ordered as an appetizer. I ordered the clam strips appetizer. For the main course, my daughter and I ordered a dozen 6"-6 1/2" steamed crabs to split and hubby got the 1/2 lb. steamed scallops.

When the appetizers arrived, my daughter discovered there were large pieces of onion in the crab dip. (This wasn't mentioned by the waitress.) She detests onion. The waitress apologized and took the crab dip back. They removed this from the bill. The clam strips were good. However, the real star of this restaurant is the steamed crabs. They were SOOOO good! Heavy and full of meat. They arrive piping hot to the table. The seasoning OCM Crabs uses is unique. We could see red pepper flakes, some type of seafood seasoning and possibly season all in the blend. It gave the crabs a great flavor. Hubby was also very happy, saying the scallops were perfect.

OCM Crabs will definitely be a regular now whenever we visit Ocean City.

If you are looking for a place to go eat crabs.. this is a definite two thumbs up! I looked at Trip Advisor and this was the highest rated crab restaurant. You will not be disappointed!! They serve ONLY local Maryland crabs.
We had crabs, crab soup, corn on the cob and hush puppies. All Excellent!! Tara was our waitress who was super attentive!!
Not a fancy place but pleasant atmosphere. Tara shared they are renovating during their off season.
Thanks for a great evening!!

We ordered the AYCE crabs and @ $35 was well worth it! Seasoned well and steaming hot. Comes with corn on the cob. Will definitely go back! Great service!

Went on TA to find a good crab place and decided to try OCM. Was super pleased with our choice. They have an AYCE crab deal, but since we had two small kids opted for 8 of their largest plus hush puppies and Maryland crab soup. Rachel was a wonderful server! Crabs were big and meaty and were not watery. Seasoning was great. Staff was very kind to show a couple next to us how to open crabs as it was their first time. Hush puppies were really good with honey and we liked the soup as well. They serve beer, wine, and some cocktails out of a can. It's a no frills place, but what do you really need for a crab feast? Indoor and outdoor seating and you do share a table outside if you have a smaller party, but that's part of the fun. You may want to go a little early as we were seated immediately but by the time we left there was a line outside. Would definitely return there next time we are in OC! Thank you OCM!
